MORRISON HOTEL (1970)

ROADHOUSE BLUES

Yeah, keep your eyes on the road your hands upon the wheel
Keep your eyes on the road your hands upon the wheel
Down in the roadhouse we're gonna have a real, a good time

Yeah at the back at the roadhouse they got some bungalows
Yeah at the back at the roadhouse they got some bungalows
And that's for the people who like to go down slow

Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, all night long
Do it, Robbie, do it

You gotta roll, roll, roll
You gotta thrill my soul, all right
Roll, roll, roll, roll and thrill my soul
You gotta beep a gunk a chucha
Honk konk konk

You gotta each you puna
Each ya bop a luba
Each y'all bump a kechonk
Ease sum konk, ya, ride

Ashen lady, ashen lady
Give up your vows, give up your vows
Save our city, save our city
Right now

Well, I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer
Well, I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer
The future's uncertain and the end is always near

Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, baby roll
Let it roll, all night long

WAITING FOR THE SUN

At first flash of Eden 
We race down to the sea 
Standing there on freedom's shore 

Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 

Can you feel it 
Now that Spring has come 
That it's time to live in the scattered sun 

Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun. 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting,, waiting,, waiting,, waiting, waiting,, waiting,, waiting,, waiting 

Waiting for you to come along 
Waiting for you to hear my song 
Waiting for you to come along 
Waiting for you to tell me what went wrong 

This is the strangest life I've ever known 
[scream]

Can you feel it 
Now that Spring has come 
That it's time to live in the scattered sun. 

Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun

YOU MAKE ME REAL

I really want you, really do 
Really need ya baby, God knows I do 
'Cause I'm not real enough without you 
Oh, what can I do? 
You make me real 
You make me feel like lovers feel 
You make me throw away mistaken misery 
Make me free, love, make me free 

I really want you, really do 
Really need ya baby, really do 
Well I'm not real enough without yo 
Oh, what can I do? You make me real 
Only you have that appeal 
So let me slide into your tender sunken sea 
Make me free, love, make me free 
You make me real 
You make me feel like lovers feel 
You make me throw away mistaken misery 
Make me free, love, make me free 
Make me free 
You make me real

 

PEACE FROG

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles 
She came 
Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee 
She came 
Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago 
She came 
Blood on the rise, it's following me 
Think about the break of day 

She came and then she drove away 
Sunlight in her hair 

She came 
Blood in the streets runs a river of sadness 
She came 
Blood in the streets it's up to my thigh 
She came 
Yeah the river runs red down the legs of a city 
She came 
The women are crying red rivers of weepin' 

She came into town and then she drove away 
Sunlight in her hair 

Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding 
Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind 

Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven 
Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice 
Blood in my love in the terrible summer 
Bloody red sun of Phantastic L.A. 

Blood screams her brain as they chop off her fingers 
Blood will be born in the birth of a nation 
Blood is the rose of mysterious union 

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles 
Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee 
Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago 
Blood on the rise, it's following me

 

BLUE SUNDAY

I found my own true love was on a blue Sunday 
She looked at me and told me 
I was the only one in the world 
Now I have found my girl 
My girl awaits for me in tender time 
My girl is mine, she is the world 
She is my girl 
La, la, la, la 

My girl awaits for me in tender time 
My girl is mine, she is the world 
She is my girl

 

SHIP OF FOOLS

The human race was dyin' out 
Noone left to scream and shout 
People walking on the moon 
Smog will get you pretty soon 

Everyone was hanging out 
Hanging up and hanging down 
Hanging in and holding fast 
Hope our little world will last 

Yeah, along came Mr. Goodtrips 
Looking for a new a ship 
Come on, people better climb on board 
Come on, baby, now we're going home 
Ship of fools, ship of fools 

The human race was dyin' out 
Noone left to scream and shout 
People walking on the moon 
Smog will get you pretty soon 
Ship of fools, ship of fools 
Ship of fools, ship of fools 
Ship of fools, ship of fools 
[improv and fade]

LAND HO!

Grandma loved a sailor, who sailed the frozen sea 
Grandpa was that whaler and he took me on his knee 
He said: "Son, I'm going crazy from livin' on the land 
Got to find my shipmates and walk on foreign sands" 

This old man was graceful with silver in his smile 
He smoked a briar pipe and he walked four country miles 
Singing songs of shady sisters and old time liberty 
Songs of love and songs of death and songs to set men free 
Ya! 

I've got three ships and sixteen men 
A course for ports unread 
I'll stand at mast, let north winds blow till half of us are dead 
Land ho! 

Well, if I get my hands on a dollar bill gonna buy a bottle and drink my fill 
If I get my hands on a number five gonna skin that litlle girl alive 
If I get my hand on a number two come back home and marry you 
Marry you, marry you 
Alright! 
Land ho! 
[improv out]

 

THE SPY

I'm a spy in the house of love 
I know the dream, that you're dreamin' of 
I know the word that you long to hear 
I know your deepest, secret fear 
I'm a spy in the house of love 
I know the dream, that you're dreamin' of 
I know the word that you long to hear 
I know your deepest, secret fear 
I know everything 
Everything you do 
Everywhere you go 
Everyone you know 

I'm a spy in the house of love 
I know the dream, that you're dreamin' of 
I know the word that you long to hear 
I know your deepest, secret fear 
I know your deepest, secret fear 
I know your deepest, secret fear 
I'm a spy, I can see 
What you do 
And I know

QUEEN OF THE HIGHWAY

She was a princess, Queen of the Highway 
Sign on the road said: "Take us to Madre" 
No one could save her, save the blind tiger 
He was a monster, black dressed in leather 
She was a princess, Queen of the Highway 

Now they are wedded, she is a good girl 
Naked as children out in a meadow 
Naked as children, wild as can be 
Soon to have offspring, start it all over 

Start at all over 

American boy, American girl 
Most beautiful people in the world! 
Son of a frontier Indian Swirl 
Dancing through the midnight whirl-pool, formless 
Hope it can continue a little while longer

 

INDIAN SUMMER

I love you, the best 
Better than all the rest 
I love you, the best 
Better than all the rest 
That I meet in the summer 
Indian summer 
That I meet in the summer 
Indian summer 
I love you, the best 
Better than all the rest

MAGGIE M´GILL

Miss Maggie M'Gill, she lived on a hill
Her daddy got drunk and left her the will
So she went down, down to Tangie Town
People down there really like to get it on

Now if you're sad and you're feeling blue
Go out and buy a brand new pair of shoes
And you go down, down to Tangie Town
'Cause people down there really like to get it on
Get it on

Illegitimate son of a Rock n' Roll star
Illegitimate son of a Rock n' Roll star
Mom met dad in the back of a Rock n' Roll car

Well, I'm an old blues man and I think that you understand
I've been singing the blues ever since the world began

Maggie, Maggie, Maggie M'Gill
Roll on, roll on, Maggie M'Gill
[repeat and fade]
